Fibroid Treatment


Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous, benign growths that affect 20 to 40 percent of women over age 35 and up to 50 percent of African American women. A common condition, fibroids can be the size of a pea or grow to the size of a cantaloupe. Small fibroids usually aren’t problematic, but larger growths can create pelvic pain, heavy, prolonged menstrual bleeding, abdominal bloating or bladder pressure with a frequent need to urinate.

Until recently, women had few options for fibroid treatment. In fact, one-third of the 600,000+ hysterectomies performed annually in the United States are to remove uterine fibroids. Today, however, Baptist Health offers women many treatment options including hormone treatment, uterine fibroid embolization, endometrial ablation, laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy and laparoscopic or robotic hysterectomy. Physicians work with women to discuss all advantages and disadvantages to see which option is best for them.

If you struggle with symptoms caused by uterine fibroids, consider speaking to your physician about treatment options available at Baptist Health.
